NIGERIA – Bello Maasaba, a Nigerian faith healer has had 107 wives and 165 children. Maasaba’s polygamist ways led to him being in prison after he refused an Islamic Court’s order to divorce all but four of his wives. The New York Daily News reports:

The Islamic faith healer, now 87, is currently wed to 86 wives ranging in age from 19 through 64. He has buried nine spouses, and divorced another dozen.

Why so many?

“I get a revelation from God telling me any woman I’m going to marry,” he told the newspaper. “If it wasn’t from God, I wouldn’t have gone beyond two.”

Maasaba lives with his family in an 89-room house in the city of Bida. His extended family – in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews – now numbers about 5,000.
